Re: One Spare Sister 2014-10-28

Crumbs, yeah... Cell Phone? Yeah I've seen women slide it into their cleavage... But for crying out loud... A BOX OF COOKIES? How does that even happen? Poor Nadette... you can see the "tilt" in her eyes even though it wasn't drawn. I think Atsali put them there on purpose. You know, as a snack for...

Re: Perfect For You 2014-10-22

That was my first guess; sirens take after raptors in many ways so it's reasonable that she's at least a little farsighted. There's one thing we haven't discussed: either Tina hired someone new or there's a second coffee shop in Minneapolis! Well, the boy Atsali is interested in goes to her school,...

Re: Perfect For You 2014-10-22

One possible explanation for the glasses may be because Atsali is a raptor with a humanoid form. Birds of prey have phenomenal long distance vision, but at the cost of some pretty crappy close in vision. 'Sali likely is extremely farsighted, but needs glasses to read anything much closes than four o...

Re: Perfect For You 2014-10-22

Wings as a fight-or-flight reaction? Flight, obviously. You've never seen birds fight, I take it. They use their wings as weapons. Swans have actually killed humans that way - on a large bird, the elbow joint can be pretty massive and any bird that flies a lot will have a respectable amount of musc...

Re: Need To Listen 2014-10-10

One point of interest for me is the "That almost got away from me," comment from Atsali. It isn't just the target that gets caught up in the song, apparently. There's a danger that if Atsali cranks up the Siren Song, she'll get carried along by it as well. From that comment, she came dangerously clo...

Re: My Warmth 2014-10-09

Why is Nadette not affected by her song? She is clearly within earshot. Could the eye contact be a part of it as well? If that's so, how did sirens lure sailors with only hearing the song? Atsali's Song may have multiple modes of operation. The mythic version from legends, like the Oddesy, would be...

Re: My Warmth 2014-10-09

I'm gonna agree with the madkansan on this one. I think that Atsali had a basic understanding of what she's capable of, but i think this is probably the first time she's taken her powers out for a test run on an actual living person. She probably had an instinctual understanding of how to use her Vo...

Re: The Sound of My Voice, 10-8-2014

I agree with everyone that says that Atsali wants to find a boy who like her for who she is and not what she is. That Siren song is powerful stuff, though. Ship loads of sailors lead to their deaths and all that. That's the reputation Atsali is working against, and I think she wants Burdine to fully...

Re: The Sound of My Voice, 10-8-2014

Well, the thing is, we've learned that the various paras have stereotypes/reputations that seem to be somewhat deserved. Mermaids are generally seen as Alpha social climbers, and Fae are just seen as freaking amoral nutjobs who will screw you up in passing without even meaning to. Callista is appare...

5000 years of believing you are all alone in the world and that everything you ever loved had been destroyed is not something you just "get over" in a few months, even when confronted with a daughter you thought had been dead for five millennia. Lily's entire self identity is built around assumption...

Not that I'm presuming to predict where Paul is going to go with this, but this would be the perfect point for a "When Lily Met Suzi" flashback.

Re: Fan Art

Nicely done, Shadow. Sorry for the confusion. I know glasses are Suzi's trademark, but they fit Lily's outfit, so I used them on her. I thought about an Wild West Suzi, but from everthing we know, she wasn't un-living at this point in time. I've thought about doing these two in different periods in ...

Good to see Suzi and Lily again. I'm guessing they got to the island via Library * VORP*. Edit; Follow up thought. In yesterday's strip, Jet, a mostly vanilla human is completely at ease with Monica, who in turn is one of the most powerful and feared paranormals on earth. Poor Lily, on the other ha...

Re: Coming Soon 2014-08-22

What I find deliciously ironic about this is that the two "big guns" in the pic are modeled line for line on the Barretta Neos, a .22 caliber target pistol that is known for its "space gun" looks among .22 target shooters. Hardly hand cannons. The Neos is one of several .22 caliber target guns know...

I wish Lily didn't smoke. It looks bad. Probably why she does it. It can't hurt her, since she's already dead, and she knows it pisses people off. Our Lily is a good person at heart, but she's very cynical, and is feeling like she got tossed in the deep end way over her head. The irony is, she has ...
